On February 11, 2022 from 10:00 am-6:00 pm ET, Syracuse University will host a co-sponsored methodology workshop on difference-in-differences with Scott Cunningham, professor of economics at Baylor University.
The most common quasi-experimental method in the quantitative social sciences is the difference-in-differences research design. This methodology has undergone substantial updates over the last few years as econometricians and statisticians have begun investigating the historical use of panel fixed effects estimators more closely as well as devising alternative models that perform best under heterogenous treatment effects and heterogenous policy adoption. This 1-day workshop will cover the most important new theoretical papers with an aim towards intuition and implementation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Aging and Policy Studies (Syracuse/Cornell/U-Albany); Center for Advancing Sociodemographic and Economic Study of Alzheimer’s Disease (USC/Stanford/UT Austin); Center of Aging & Population Sciences (UT Austin); and Center for Demography of Health and Aging (UW–Madison).
